Head downtown to High Street Place food hall on Wednesday, May 17th for the return of FreshFest with the Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB). After taking a four-year hiatus during the pandemic, the flagship fundraiser from the folks who feed those in need is back in person from 6:00 to 9:00pm to celebrate some of their partnerships with Boston chefs and to raise some funds to help keep food on people’s plates. Thirty-two percent (1.8 million) of adults in the state struggle with food insecurity, and you can do your part to help just by scooping up a few tickets for a night of bites and sips from High Street’s tasty eateries and notable chefs including Tiffani Faison of Tenderoni’s, Dive Bar and Bubble Bath, Mamaleh’s, Blackbird Doughnuts, Wheelhouse, Haley Jane’s, Pennypacker’s and more. In addition to food and drinks there’ll be music and dancing, a VIP sponsor lounge, silent auction and all-night digital paddle up fundraising, plus you’ll find out who will win their 2022 Partner Appreciation Awards. Tickets are $200 per person and are partially tax deductible (grab ‘em here). If you have any Qs shoot them an email, or reach out to Drew Forster for sponsorship info, and get ready to support the GBFB’s mission to end hunger here in Eastern Massachusetts.
